Asia Time Zones

Asia uses a total of 13 different time zones, ranging from UTC+2 to UTC+9.

8 time zones coincide with the meridians multiples of 15º = 60 exact minutes, and

5 time zones are in intermediate meridians of 30 and 45 minutes. (four of 30' and one of 45'). These intermediate time zones, are highlighted with different colors to the usual 4 (yellow - orange - green - pink).
Asia Time Zones

Asian countries with daylight saving time

West Asia, specifically the UTC+2 in standard time / UTC +3 in summer time or what would be the same EET / EEST (Easter European Summer Time), which includes the countries: Cyprus - Israel - Lebanon and Palestinian Territories, all of them advance 1 hour during summer time.

Iran, Jordan and Syria no longer use DST, the last daylight saving time change was in 2022.

Current time of these Asian countries

Asian countries with 1/2 hour time zones

Asia has 4 countries that adapt their time zone, right in the middle of the meridians multiples of 15º equivalent to 1 hour.
That is, they use time zones adapted to the 30-minute (1/2 hour) time slot, instead of 1 hour.

Those countries are: Iran - Afghanistan - India - Myanmar (Burma). See Asia map

Iran   Afghanistan
UTC +3:30 UTC +4:30
India Myanmar (Burma)
UTC +5:30 UTC +6:30

Nepal, a country with a 3/4-time slot

In the Northeast part of India, Nepal is located, with UTC +5:45 time zone, that is with an interval of 3/4 of 1 hour or 45 minutes. Which can be somewhat more complex to calculate the difference with other different time zones.

Although to make a faster calculation, it is enough to know the time zone of India +5:30 and add 1/4 of an hour more (15 minutes), or what would be the same, subtract 15 minutes to the time zone of Bhutan or Bangladesh both UTC +6:00 with which we would obtain the time of Nepal.

Time Zones colors

4 colors to differentiate the time zones - - - that make up the 1-hour time slots = 15th meridians.

In turn, these colors can be practical to visualize the time difference between countries with the same color, since they are multiples of 4 hours. (4 colors).

For example, if we want to visualize the time difference between Israel and Bangladesh as quickly as possible (as both have the same brown-orange color), we will know that the time difference between both will be 4 hours or multiples of 4 hours, (except when one of these countries, this using daylight saving time and the other not)

More Ex.: The time difference between Saudi Arabia and Thailand both in yellow (if both countries continue like this, without using summer time), the time difference between these countries will always be 4 hours. The same would happen with the rest of the colors. See Asia map

Israel    / Bangladesh
UTC +2:00 / 3:00 UTC +6:00
Saudi Arabia Thailand
UTC +3:00 UTC +7:00

Intermediate Time Zones in Asia

There are 5 countries in Asia that do not adjust to the exact time 60 minutes corresponding to meridians multiples of 15º.

To differentiate these 5 countries from the rest, 5 additional colors have been associated with these intermediate time slots. In this way, it can be easier to distinguish them from most countries that adhere to the 1-hour time slot.

There are 4 countries with a time zone that fit the 1/2 hour time slot, and the 5th Nepal, which fits the 3/4 hour time slot. All 5 appear with different colors.

These 5 countries with intermediate time zones are: Afghanistan - India (Sri Lanka) - Iran - Myanmar - Nepal
